President Obama plans to charge wounded heroes for treatment. Illegal aliens get free treatment – why not veterans?
Barack Obama has found another way to pay for the mortgages that people don’t want to pay – charge wounded veterans for their medical treatment.
Others ways to look at:
- Obama is OK with tens of millions of illegal immigrants receiving free treatment in hospitals yet he is demanding that wounded veterans pay for their own treatment.
- Obama is just making up for all the federal income taxes that his cabinet appointees refused to pay.
- Obama needed to raise money to pay for all the Porkulus money that went to ACORN

WASHINGTON, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/
— The leader of the nation’s largest veterans organization says he is “deeply disappointed and concerned” after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.
“It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan,” said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. “He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it.”

Meet Josh Beliell from Greenfield Indiana. This young man joined the military at age 27, six years after graduating from Purdue University and starting his career. He wanted to do something more and he joined the military in 2004 knowing full well that he would be heading off to combat. Josh lost both legs at the knee in an IED explosion in Iraq
Does anyone reading this story think Josh Beliell should pay for all of his treatment? Why would Obama put these men and women through all of this to save just $540 million? Couldn’t Obama just have demanded that Pelosi and Reid cut $540 million of earmarks out of one of their pork riddled bills? What is the Obama White House thinking?
